. amusingly as he is touring the state to celebrate the u.s. constitution a judge has ruled that his signature piece of legislation is unconstitutional. under a host of protections cained in the federal and state constitution. now we get into the question for the courts. this ruling is going to unleash a host of legal actions. because the ruling did not cover state employees, just municipal and school district employees, state employee unions will be in court asking to expap it to cover them. there will be additional legal fights to determine whether where this ruling comes down and what it means to different people, but the key fight will be the governor's attempt to restore via the courts. he can't pass it through the legislature anymore. in the recall election his legislative control was removed from him. so we're going to have a real legal battle. if it gets to the state supreme court there is no question. state appellate courts lean away from him, and there is still a parallel federal suit going forward, and that suit goes on the same constitutional issues s

, subsidized industries and protective tariffs. countries like china. between 2001 and 2010 the u.s. lost half of all of its auto parts jobs. most of them went to china. our market has been flooded with a 700% increase in chinese-made auto parts in that same period of time. so how did those u.s. jobs move? because multinational companies took advantage of china's aggressive moves to and they relocated there. a company called global tech appliances for instance. publicly acknowledged that its strategy was to profit from prominent u.s. companies outsourcing production abroad. that, of course is what outsourcing is all about. and one way china creates a tilted playing field is by adding duties and tariffs, basically fees to us-made products that come into their country. like china receives our products and there is a fee on it when the u.s. exports auto parts to china. they have actually put $36 billion worth of duties on us-made auto parts experts. that's 80% of our experts that are marked up just for being american. that makes our products more expensive in china. it means

. christopher stevens and three other u.s. officials were killed last night. details about the attacks are still coming in, but here is the latest of what we do know. back in july an incendiary ridiculous movie about muslims was released reportedly by a guy named sam sam sam bacile. he claims to be an israeli. it's not clear who he is, whether he is an israeli and whether a guy named sam bacile exists. but it was so offensive that the grand musti of jackpot condemned it. and roughly 2,000 demonstrators assembleed around the u.s. embassy in cairo. the diplomatic workers inside that embassy saw this protest developing and they understandably were worried about their safety by this situation that was developing. they calmed them down saying, the embassy of the united states in kay row condemns the continuing efforts by misguided individuals to hurt religious feelings of muslims as we condemn hurt thosecondemn efforts to offend believers of all religious. later, no one was hurt and protesters eventually disbanded. as that situation in egypt was winding down, the situation in libya was getting worse.

're redistributed to serve everybody. and the romney/ryan plan, their policies and their budget it's's fine example of redistribution. honestly. but not in the way you might think. call it what you will, reverse robin hood or call it trickle up but the bottom line is the same. their policies take from the poor and the middle and they give to the rich. according to the tax policy center romney's budget would have the middle class pay on average $2,000 per family in order to finance the tax cuts that he's proposing for the wealthy. redistributing up! even under the existing tax code, the way redistribution actually works is somewhat ironic. remember romney claims that the 47% are moochers because they don't pay any federal income tax. but low and moderate income people pay a much larger share of their incomes in federal payroll taxes than high income people do. payroll taxes, i mentioned they're deducted deducted from your paycheck every week, biweekly, every month for social security and for medicare. so the notion that half
